Finesse of Emotions

What makes us human? What makes us human is our curiosity and constant evolution. What makes us human is the ability to create social categories and to form opinions. Abstract emotions including love, thought and creativity are what make us human. In 1984, George Orwell uses his dystopia to show that if we were to abolish these abstract emotions we would cease to be human and become the simple primates we once were; surviving for the sake of survival.

Language is the base of all humanity, without it we would not be anywhere near to where we are now. We use language for not only for simple commanding acts, but also to express ourselves. If you take away the ability to express ideas and opinions you are also eradicating the bases that humanity is built on.

In the end, Alcee rides away with the passing storm, and Calixta's family returns home. Chopin employs a deceptively simple ending. Throughout the story, the storm parallels itself to the deep feelings within Calixta, but there are also parallels with reference to the other characters.
